I explained previously how God was able to redeem the horrible situation of the tsunami by redeeming the people killed. I didn't say (as you suggest) that God allowed it to happen because He wanted company. I'd like to remind you of the fact that we are discussing actual people and they deserve to be discussed with dignity. I think it's vulgar the way you bring them into the conversation like some kind of offence to you that God has to answer for.
the bible says that what God created was good. The bible says that after man fell the earth was put under man's dominion. God never said He was going to keep man from every calamity that can befall him. God never said He was going to keep the earth safe for man to live on.
God's priority (according to the bible) was not the flesh of man but the soul of man. He has a view beyond our physical comfort. He's looking towards the future when man can be, once again, in His company...like the intimacy of the garden BEFORE man's fall.
